Rare Davenport HorseRacing Needlepoint Kit Famous Equine Eclipse



Rare Davenport HorseRacing Needlepoint Kit Famous Equine Eclipse

 For needlepoint artists, there's nothing quite like diving into a project from one of the highest quality manufacturers~ The elegance of design and color balanced with near perfection in materials makes working the canvas pure joy. Sara Davenport, purveyor of Victorian Tapestries is one of the highest quality British Manufacturer's available for today's needlepoint enthusiast.  You'll need to be a stitcher with some experience to work this piece; these gorgeous designs come only with the very barest instructions, and are meant for those familiar with stitching a needlepoint canvas.
In the Mid 1700's, Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland bred a racehorse who was destined for a lifetime of fame and is still remembered by racing enthusiasts worldwide. Although he never started racing until the age of 5, Eclipse won 18 races, including 11 King's Plates, supposedly without ever being fully extended and proving far superior to all competition. In those days, a horse that was more than 240 yards behind the lead was said to be "nowhere",  and in 1770, the phrase "Eclipse first and the rest nowhere,"was coined. Nowadays, homage is paid to Eclipse by use of the phrase when speaking of contemporary horses of superior strength and speed and dominating victories. ( He is attested to have covered 83 feet per second at top speed, which would equate to 25 feet in a single stride) Occasionally used in the USA, you'll hear the phrase or see it more often in Britain, Eclipse's home ground.
This Warehouse find come without the famous red packaging box. This beautiful tribute to the very earliest thoroughbreds will bring hours of stitchery enjoyment for some lucky needle artist.
